    Passed my flight test

    I finally passed my Commercial flight test today after working for the last few months to get ready for it.

    I know some of you still in school take tests all the time and probably think "so what", but this was a big one for me.

    I've spent six years and probably around $ 35K leading up to this so I'm pretty happy about finally getting it out of the way.

    I rode Deal's Gap / The Dragon in September 2007 and I visited Yellowstone in August 2010. Where have you been?

    I got 137

    out of a possible 160
    112 is the minimum pass

    I am tested on 32 items
    score for each item is from 1-5 with 0 as a fail, and 5 as perfect.
    I got one 2, but mostly 5's

    Started with C3 in '97 and was with them till the bitter end in '01.
    Heh.. What didn't I do? Airport Services, Scheduling, Ops... No ramp though.

    Then I decided to hang with the F/As and was a biscuit shooter for a good while. Man... Those were the days!
